Here's mine. Do you agree? EVERY EMPLOYEE MATTERS and we are not children. I've never experienced - in any large corp or smaller company - the degree of elitism within the hierarchy. Please consider the innovation and energy you lose when the focus... — read more
Every day I hear someone has quit, or such and such is looking for another job. There was a time I could remember when attrition was nonexistent. But now it seems to be a prevalent thing. Are any other BUs looking at an unusual percentage of... — read more
Can anyone share the dial-in info and time for the all hands call? I have been having email issues for several days, and can't access my calendar or inbox. GTS Seems to be in shambles right now I guess due to layoffs and I can't get any help.
So I received a job offer a few days ago at Intrado specifically in the notified pr software division. It’s a role that is on a new team being built out. I thought the people I interviewed with were great and the pay is above average and it seems... — read more
Anyone know if something is gonna be announced and what that is ?
How in the world are managing to stay afloat?
Hey Intrado leaders! You have really terrible managers... I have no idea how some of these people have jobs. Oh wait I do; salary paid, no accountability and the take credit when the staff under them does all the work. I'm baffled that a business of... — read more
Just curious, what is Intrado’s main revenue nowadays?
Why are people shocked with any changes? This is the Apollo way. You have to accept the fact that it is not 2010 any longer, nor 2017. John reports to Apollo, you can’t blame everything on John. Poor decisions? Yes, some. Poor management?... — read more
I know, I know, "get another job". Job-hunting wasn't a good sport throughout the uncertainty of the last 18 months when many businesses were closing down either temporarily or permanently. We all needed to be grateful for what we had and bear with... — read more
Things will me happening in the next 30 days…. Major changes … get out … fast
I was laid off but happy I was. West was horrible at adopting to change and heavily constrained where change even came from. Was too conservative for its own good and now they’re finally trying to be relevant but it’s far too late. There are a lot of... — read more
Is there anyone who has left the company on their own that is happy with their decision? I want to leave but I’m honestly afraid to take the leap. I’m still young enough that I feel I can gain more needed experience working here but at the same time... — read more
When I heard the hot new product was called HOOT (which to me just sounds like they were trying to find a name that could get confused with ZOOM), I knew it was time to be gone. They're a bunch of FOOLS with their heads in the sand. And leadership... — read more
Any news on upcoming layoffs?
This makes a lot of sense with Apollo and the rest of the executive team. https://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/smithresearch/research/unveiling-dark-side-business
Apollo selling Notified, this news is published in Insider! Can anyone throw more light into this?
I could have found a much better job and forgotten about West shortened the agony avoided a lot of stress finally get some relief Basically, I don’t even know why I’m waiting for severance pay. Okay, I wouldn’t want to just “give” this... — read more
Who''ll be hit in the next round? And when is it going to happen? I think we are do before April, but I might be wrong.
I don't know what goes on at Corporate but the ego-driven infighting, within at least the division I'm working, has become indefensible. When we were acquired, our company and the Intrado workforce seemed to be highly engaged and employees willing to... — read more
It's gonna be a bumpy ride!
The brain drain at West occurred years ago, when One West was instituted and WIC took over WNG. The resulting purge of the high level technical resources at the various BUs was the death blow to West. A company the size of West can't lose that kind... — read more
Who can I turn to if I have an issue with a manager that's making my job unbearable? I know HR is not here to help us but the company and I certainly don't want to put an additional target on my back by going to them, but what are my options other... — read more
But the problem remains - limited staff due to layoffs prevent existing and newly purchased customers from acquisition from receiving quality or even sub standard service. You can buy all you want, but unless you are focused on delivering customer... — read more
Yet another patient engagement system purchased. No one mismanages quite like Intrado. You have two logical assumptions here. You have no idea what you are buying and how to stay relevant. You are not listening to those close to the work that... — read more

Is it just me or has West never been less transparent? Back in a day, we more or less knew what was happening but now the fact that it is impossible to even guess what is really happening adds to the stress. Instead of relaxing for the holidays... — read more
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any West Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
How does your company wish you happy holidays? Christmas bonus perhaps? Nope...not here. How about a layoff just before the holiday season? Nothing better to lift your spirits!
They have laid off some operators from here as well as other call centers today.
They told us to come get our stuff and leave a box for our new desks because they are remodeling every floor to “keep headquarters in Omaha” the reality is they have 2 bids on both buildings and Intrado headquarters is moving obviously. We will be... — read more
Imagine where people’s productivity would be if they worked for a company where they didn’t have to lay awake at night, worried about layoffs all the time. Because they ACTUALLY HAPPEN. They aren’t imaginary. And the company and anyone who knows... — read more
Apparently there was a division meeting in L&S recently, and I saw some people confusedly questioning a timeframe of "two months" in conversations after that relating to something discussed in the meeting. What's this all about? Any clues? What... — read more
Once again, rumors are starting about a fresh round of layoffs by the end of the year. A coworker heard it from another coworker who heard it from blah blah blah. If people spent half their time and energy focused on their work instead of worrying... — read more
